Top 10 Ultimate Birthday Gifts for Men
I recently came across a question asking, "What would be the ultimate birthday gift for a man?" Good question!
First, let's define "ultimate." According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, the word "ultimate" means the best or most extreme of its kind.
Second, let's figure out what men would consider the ultimate birthday gift. Fortunately, this is easy. Men are not complicated beings. They are easy to please.
Some men just want to drink beer and watch tv. So, just show up with a six pack beer, hand him the tv remote, and he is a happy puppy. Show up in a thong bikini with a case of beer. He'd go "Wow! A case of beer! Hon, you're the best!" Now, that makes it ultimate!
Ladies, don't be upset that he didn't even notice the $100 thong bikini you are wearing. It's his birthday. Let it go.
Most men love sports and anything to do with sports, and beer.
Some men love their cars, sometimes even more than their women, and beer.
Men love electronics and cool gadgets, and beer.
Are you seeing the common factor here? Beer. Men love beer.
Remember the definition of "ultimate"? The best or the extreme. If we can't do extreme, let's do best, with a twist and a beer.
So, here are the 2013 Top 10 Ultimate Birthday Gifts for Men:
